I've also cut out my next sewing project - inspired by the colour of the year which Pantone (www.pantone.com) claims to be Emerald. I have some old cotton drill that is emerald in colour- probably dating back to when emerald was last fashionable (in my memory, it was the 80's). I've cut out an old pattern which fits me, because I also have to review my pants fitting technique. I'm in the quest for a perfectly fitting pair of pants to fit my slim hips and bottom, and what is rather inelegantly called thick waist and tummy (that's the term used for rectangular shaped ladies).
I hope to show you these this weekend.
